9780898694956: Race

Kenneth Leech, one of the most beloved and respected Christian social thinkers of our time, has written a wide-ranging treatise on the nature of race and power in Europe and America. In a time of growing social and economic division, where the competing forces of immigration and globalization have combined to force humanity apart, Race is a resource to help transform our world.

From the Publisher:

"Race does not exist. Yet in this extraordinary book Ken Leech exposes how racism grips the imaginations of Chrisitan and non-Christian alike, shaping our relations with one another and having disastrous results not only in neighborhoods but in foreign policies. Pauline-like, Leech helps us see that race is a power all the more perverse because it is not acknowledged as such.

"In conversation with the best work in science, social theory, and theology, Leech challenges the presumption that we have somehow gotten beyond racialized thinking. Moreover, drawing on his extraordinary pastoral experience, he helps us see a way beyond race. This book should be read in both England and America as both countries, in quite different ways, continue to be dominated by racialized practice.

"And finally, and perhaps most important, Leech draws on Christian convictions to challenge Christians, not only how to think differently about race but hopefully how to practice our faith in a manner that we may be an alternative for theworld."
STANLEY M. HAUERWAS,Glibert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke Divinity School; named "America's Best Theologian" by Time Magazine in 2001

Kenneth Leech, one of the most beloved and respected Christian social and political thinkers of our time, has written a wide-ranging treatise on the nature of race and power in Europe and America. In a time of growing social and economic division, where the competing forces of immigration and globalization have combined to force humanity apart,Race is a resource to help transform our world.

In his inimitable style,Leech bridges history,politics,and theology to paint a full picture of the problem of race, and to point a way forward for the church. After considering the history of racialist thinking and policies, he turns his attention to the ways in which communities and nations have failed to suppress "the monster" of race, arguing that the church is well suited for the job. If the church is to do it well, it must critically focus its actions and engage deeply with the forces at work in the world.
